FOR YOUR INDIVIDUAL 45 SPEED SELECTIONS - INDIVIDUAL TITLE INFORMATION OR INDIVIDUAL PURCHASE JUST HIT THIS STORES TAB >. & TYPE IN 45LP OR THELONIOUS INTO THE SEARCH FIELD WITHIN OUR STORES SECTION AS YOUR PERSONAL CODE AND ALL INDIVIDUAL TITLES + INFORMATION WILL APPEAR Here's How it was done ON THE 45 SPEED DOUBLE LP SETS: Using only the original analog master tapes, the renowned team of Steve Hoffman & Kevin Gray remastered and cut all of the titles at AcousTech Mastering, which features a pure Class-A disc-cutting system. AcousTech is located at Record Technology, Inc. the plant where the vinyl was pressed. It is a tremendous sonic advantage to have the pressing plant plating department & mastering room in the same facility as Steve & Kevin could cut a lacquer and plated immediately. This prevents the degradation of the grooves in a lacquer which is very fragile to quick deterioration. And of course cutting at 45 speed is the audiophile choice for the highes quality. A 45-RPM record is sonically superior to a 33 1/3 variety because of a 35 percent reduction of groove curvature compared to a 33 1/3 cut.. It means that while you can't fit as much music into a 45, the undukations of the groove that your cartridge has to track are stretched over a longer distance. For these reissues, the music was displaced onto four sides, meaning each side contains about 10 minutes of music. This is the ultimate reissues. The only way you'll get closer to this classic music is to listen to the master tapes or have been in the studio with the artist originally during the actual session. You should never pass up the opportunity to upgrade your collection. They're each very limited in their pressings and disappear with extraordinary quickness from the vinyl market. This causes prices to skyrocket because once they are gone, they are gone forever! Don't second-guess yourself with this chance to upgrade your collection because before you know it, the opportunity will have passed forever. Thelonious Monk In Action– 45 RPM SEALED 2 LP SET LIMITED EDITION INDIVIDUALLY NUMBERED AND ONLY 1000 PIECES EVER PRESSED. . 45 Speed – 2 Sealed LP Set NUMBERED 814 The place: one of New York’s most celebrated jazz rooms, the Five Spot. The time: summer 1958. The leader is the great Thelonious Monk, at the peak of his abilities as a performer and captured “in action” at the club where he first emerged into the spotlight. The band is one that has been drastically undervalued in history, largely because it was the successor to the legendary quartet that featured John Coltrane. But this group — Johnny Griffin, Roy Haynes, Ahmed Abdul-Malik and their exuberant leader — created two highly memorable in-performance albums (of which this is the first) of classic Monk repertoire. Track Listings Side One 1. Light Blue 2. Coming on the Hudson 3. Rhythm-A-Ning 4. Epistrophy (Theme) Side Two 1. Blue Monk 2. Evidence 3. Epistrophy (Theme) Thelonious Monk Thelonious Monk Alone In San Francisco 180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE 45rpm 2LP LIMITED EDITION INDIVIDUALLY LOW NUMBERED 138 OF THE 1000 PIECES EVER PRESSED Solo piano by Thelonious Monk. This album was created, you might say, by stripping things down to the essentials: a bare hall, recording equipment, and one highly talented musician. When that musician is Thelonious Monk, it should not be at all surprising that the result is as you could hope to get from any jazz combination of any size. Features • Limited to 1,000 copies • Numbered • 45 rpm Selections: 1. Blue Monk 2. Ruby, My Dear 3. Round Lights 4. Everything Happens To Me 5. You took the words right out of my heart 6. Blue Hawk 7. Pannonica 8. Remember 9. There's Danger In Your Eyes, Cherie 10. Reflections Thelonious Monk - The Unique Recorded in San Francisco, October 21 & 22, 1959 45 Speed – 2 Sealed LP Set – #138 Monk's second album for Riverside continued the label's initial plan to broaden his audience by the use of recognizable standard tunes instead of his somewhat frightening originals. Thelonious' uncompromising performances, along with major league support (Art Blakey and Oscar Pettiford) and strong material, helped to turn this concept into lastingly superior jazz. Particularly notable are Monk's sharp thrusts of humor on such well-worn pieces as "Honeysuckle Rose" and "Tea for Two." The album's impact was strengthened by one of the most unique covers ever devised. Riverside went so far as to print near-postage-sized Monk stamps, quite a few of which reportedly found their way through the actual mail. Track Listings 1. Liza (All the Cloud'll Roll Away) 2. Memories of You 3. Honeysuckle Rose 4. Darn That Dream 5. Tea for Two 6. You are too Beautiful 7. Just You, Just Me PLUS WE ARE ADDING SOME BONUS 180 GRAM LPS TO THE COLLECTION FROM SONY/COLUMBIA LABELS WHO'S AFRAID OF THE BIG BAND MONK KG - 32892 COLUMBIA/SONY ISSUE - THIS ALSO IS A DOUBLE LP SET IS TREMENDOUSLY RARE AND NOT AVIALABLE AT ANY MAJOR MUSIC SITES.

He was unrepeatable and unforgettable. No one else sounds much like him, although I have a George Russell recording where Russell (more known as an arranger than a soloist) betrays some influence. Monk is most known for his quartets, but this is a big band setting with multi-layered and swinging arrangements by Oliver Nelson. Yet Monk is still Monk: the use of space, always playing the melody, the long, inimitable arpeggios, the percussive sensibility, the serious playfulness and earnestness without being precious or pretentious. Yes, Monk tended to play the same tunes repeatedly at this point in his career, but these renditions shine, nevertheless. Listen. Enjoy. Be thankful. Human are bestowed with the ability to manifest beauty. Track Listings 1. Let's Cool One 2. Reflections 3. Little Rootie Tootie 4. Just a Glance at Love - Thelonious Monk, Macero, Teo 5. Brilliant Corners 6. Consecutive Seconds - Thelonious Monk, Macero, Teo 7. Monk's Point 8. Trinkle, Tinkle 9. Straight, No Chaser MONK COLUMBIA/SONY RECORDS CS-9091 STEREO ISSUE - The familiar "formula" that Monk utilized throughout most of his '60s tenure at Columbia was firmly in place on this, his fourth album for the label. But that recipe--originals sprinkled with covers, played by a quartet of familiar sidemen (veteran tenor sax accomplice Charlie Rouse, newer compatriots Ben Riley on drums, and bassist Larry Gales)--proves deceptively facile on the expanded reissue of this 1965 album. While Gershwin's elegant "Liza" and the standard "April in Paris" are perfect fodder for the pianist's harmonic and rhythmic tweaking, his playful take on the children's song "That Old Man" ably demonstrates how the musician could recast even the most foursquare composition in his own likeness. Even more revealing is Monk's solo exploration of the hoary "I Love You (Sweetheart of My Dreams)," a performance where his left hand seems to mine the stride foundations of his beloved J.P. Johnson, while his right flits restlessly in a different half-century. Rouse takes rewarding turns in the spotlight on "Just You, Just Me" and "Pannonica" (the latter normally a Monk solo excursion), IT'S MONK TIME COLUMBIA RECORDS CS-8984 STEREO ISSUE - Recorded in 1964 and one of the best Monk albums available from the CBS period. Personnel consists of Thelonious Monk (piano), Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), Butch Warren (bass) and Ben Riley (drums). Contains a great 9'55 version of 'Lulu's Back In Town' Track Listings 1. Lulu's Back in Town - Thelonious Monk, Warren, Harry 2. Memories of You - Thelonious Monk, Blake, Eubie 3. Stuffy Turkey 4. Brake's Sake 5.
